Out-of-control truck knocks SUV off a cliff

Updated: 

Footage has emerged of an out-of-control truck knocking an SUV off a cliff.

The video was recorded in a quarry in the Sichuan province of China and shows a group of workers attempting to retrieve a stranded SUV.

The vehicle had become stuck with its rear wheels hanging off the cliff. One of the workers had jumped into a truck and was reversing towards the SUV with the intention of towing it to safety.

However, because the hill was slippery, the driver lost control and skidded backwards. The rear of the truck hit the cliff face but continued sliding down towards the SUV.

Eventually, it smashed into the SUV, which was sent crashing into the water below.

Fortunately, it is reported that no one was injured in the incident.
